money away from medicare. would you like or not like about the affordable care at? >> access to affordable care is what i like. the two parties, the democrats and republicans, which i hope are replaced by more independents, they do not come to completely form when it comes to these major issues. major lobby groups like big pharmaceutical, the u.s. chamber of commerce, ama and even the aarp should get into the room and be forced to make -- they go into a room and are forced to make requirements that are not in the benefit of the people. we do not have a public option, which would have allowed people to not have a mandate and to have a public insurance provider. it was because of these different pharmaceutical and lobbyist groups. everyone is taking money from them. we need to stop that. >> governor cain -- king? do you want to answer that question? >> we should keep the affordable care act. it is helping a lot of people. i have a young men in the office who is 23 years old and covered by his parents' insurance. he was born with a tumor in his brain, not cancerous. because of a

in the 1930's. what was the life expectancy in the 1930's? probably 63 or 64. >> 61. >> medicare was passed in 1960. what was the life expectancy then? probably 65. today, it is at 85. these programs were never meant to last 20 years. of course we are going to change them, and we will change them in a balanced way will remove the cap so people like me do not have our social security stops at $110,000. but we will also have to change some of the structure. some singers may not be happy about that, but if someone talked to them in a reasonable, goldway, they will accept it. >> i went out and talked to the villages -- in a reasonable the adult way, they will accept it. >> i went out and talk to the villages in florida. groups of seniors, i would walk through it in detail. at the end of the conversation i would ask how many oppose what i knew in. i did not get a single hand. -- would oppose what i am doing. i did not get a single hand. there is more that we have to do. but there are some very low hanging fruit out there that we can take care of. a one of them is the issue of eligibility. you tr

talking about who's going to spend more money on medicare when medicare's the system that you and i pay $30,000 into and get $100,000 benefit. it's a 3-1 what you pay in and what you get out. it's not sustainable. yet it's indicative of our federal government today which is on an institute, unsustainable path, the results of which are going to be a monetary collapse unless we actually bring this under control. and as a third party, i have been given the opportunity to make the case that's not being made by either of the two major candidates. >> thank you governor. [cheers and applause] >> a lot of people ask me why i would consent to do this. one, i like moderating and two, i like asking questions even though i didn't ask these questions, they were submitted. and three, i think these people deserve a lot of credit for coming forward. it's easy to sit back and watch these people stand up. they may not be counted on november 6, but they're counting today and they deserve to be heard. [cheers and applause] each is now entitled to a one minute response if they care to use it. jill? >> yeah,
